An acoustic piano with a volume control, or a digital piano with strings? Yamaha’s latest development stretches the imagination and opens up a whole new world of possibilities.
TransAcoustic is the name given to the technology that will power a new breed of piano. At its most basic level, it turns the soundboard into a “loudspeaker”. This means that any sound can be delivered through this naturally resonant piano component.
Because the instrument is a real, fully strung and resonant piano, the natural, sympathetic vibrations of both the soundboard, case and, significantly, strings, add a completely new dimension to performance. The sampled sounds come to life with a brilliant realism no other instrument has approached.
Currently TransAcoustic technology is still in its conceptual phase; so be patient, Miller Piano hopes to be demoing TransAcoustic Technology in store for you soon!
